The Disclaimer

Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

For sure only Bambi this week.  Depending on taxes tomorrow and how the smallest paycheck of the year goes this week, maybe a few catalogue titles from BB.  We'll see.

Bambi with the coupon and I'm leaning to the Target deal.


Love and Other Drugs is almost a given, but not at those prices.   I;m hoping to see a coupon float around somewhere for this one.   Many Fox releases

over the past month or so have had a $4 or 5 off somewhere. 

127 Hours though for some reason this movie just doesn't interest me from a story perspective, but the performances and the combined purchase deals

may push me over the edge ($39 for both is still a bit steep??)


Already have Out of Sight and the Pirates Trilogy.

Thanks, Mike.


Probably nothing for me this week, which should make for some relief (on my wallet)... or should that only be reprieve (until next week)? Posted Image Posted Image

Regarding the "free" ticket for On Stranger Tides offered with the POTC box...in what 1995-era time warp can you see a nighttime showing of a movie for only $8.50 (especially in the 3D era)? It should more accurately read, "2/3rds of a free ticket". Posted Image

What's the difference between the new Pirates box set and the one that was previously released (I'm pretty sure this was out before)?

Bambi's prices look just fine after the coupon.  This will be my first buy in a while, so I feel okay going for it.  Thanks for the heads up!

Not a thing. Adam inquired about differences in this and prior box (and single) releases of the titles and was told there were no additions to what was already released.

I'm not 100% certain, Malcolm, but I think it's just a re-issue to promote the upcoming 4th film...hence the "free movie ticket."   There are also re-issues of the individual PotC blus...I just didn't bother to list them.

BTW, I'll be in for Bambi this week and likely that Harry Connick Concert on blu (my wife's birthday is coming up...but I'll enjoy it, too).

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

That Target.com/movies site says buy *any* POTC movie and get a free ticket to the new movie.  (I didn't read the details.)


The other day I watched Bambi for the first time since the mid-'70s theatrical release.  It was weird -- the songs came back to me like I'd just heard them yesterday.  Can't get 'em out of my head now!  I haven't decided yet whether to upgrade; the DVD is beautiful.

I remember watching Cable Guy years ago and not caring for it that much, but I can't remember why.  Maybe I need to give it another chance?

Guess I'll head to Target today for Bambi with my Disney coupon, to see what the bonus disc is all about.  Have they issued one on a Disney classic before?

From what I'm reading the Target bonus disc isn't all that much.


Target.com describes it as such:

Only at Target, get the Diamond Edition of Bambi with an exclusive DVD including trivia, games & activities.

But the disc is described as containing no games or activities...but a single feature called Runnin' Wild: The World of Disney Animals. 
Those who have seen it says that the feature is hosted by Kyle Massey & Chelsea Staub (co-hosts of some Disney Channel show) who discuss the Disney animal trivia themselves, draw pictures of Thumper and promote their show. 


Again...those who have seen it say it ain't worth anything. 



There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!
